Green measures 'can be cost efficient and energy efficient'

Green measures 'can be cost efficient and energy efficient'
Homeowners on a tight budget who would like to take steps towards tackling climate change can do so at little cost, it has been reported.

Measures can vary from switching to energy saving light bulbs to adopting microgeneration equipment, such as solar panels or thermal heating systems, the Telegraph states.

A representative of Good Energy, a firm that supplies only renewable energy to its customers, commented on how there has been a surge in uptake of such measures.

"Over recent months we have seen a considerable rise in consumers wishing not only to switch to green electricity, but willing to take serious measures to reduce the impact of their homes," said spokesperson Penelope Chapple.

In addition, Ms Chapple observed that rising energy prices are prompting the change in attitude.

Cost efficient appliances such as integrated television sets and electricity display units, which measure the amount of energy used by electrical items, are ways in which to reduce a house's carbon footprint.

People thinking of moving home altogether may want to opt for a newly-built property, which, according to Kevin Murthwaite of McDermott Homes, are generally more environmentally-friendly.
